Providence Geeks return from their summer break, September 21

Providence Geeks Dinner

AS220, 115 Empire Street, Providence, RI
FREE (buy your own food and drink – it’s cheap)
RSVP at Facebook

Welcome back, everyone! Hope you had a great August off. Time to get the Geek Dinners re-started full force:

Earlier this month Providence’s Betaspring unveiled another bumper crop of start-ups. One of the standouts – Mosec (as in “mobile secretary”) – was founded by a young team from Texas comprised of a former professional poker player, a child actor and a professional martial artist. (I’m not making this up.)

Mosec’s initial product is a mobile app aimed at CRM users. It enables you after any phone call to create a “voice note”, auto-transcribe it, and post it into to your CRM system. They’ve already integrated with 3 popular CRM systems – Salesforce, Highrise and Batchbook from Providence-based Batchblue.

Best of all, post-Betaspring, the team has decided to continue building Mosec right here in Providence (we love it when that happens).

At the September Geek Dinner, Bernard (the gambler), David (the fighter) and Austin (the actor) will give an overview of their company and demo their fast-evolving service.

See you there!

    I’m debating whether to come, or write it off as an event only for people with nontrivial programming skills.

    The extent of my geekery basically ends at me being able to set up and maintain this here WordPress install. Many of the Geeks talks fly right over my head. But I go for the people and the drink and food at AS220. If the talk is way beyond me, I slink back over to the bar and drink more with the other people who are lost by the jargon.

    Ah. I have a lot of conventional geek interests (I was giddy partly about moving to Lovecraft’s hometown…) and work in math, but my ability to do any sort of computer work is severely limited. Any programming except for what you can do in QBasic without calling arrays is beyond me.
